VIDEO Mark Rylance wins first Oscar in major upset

The Oscars 2016 took place last night and most of the favourites won what you expect - a best actor for Leo, Spotlight for best film, Brie Larson getting that best actress award and tons of technical credit for Mad Max Fury Road.

The only major upset of the night happened in the category of Best Supporting Actor. Sylvester Stallone was favourite to take the gong, with other major hopefuls like Christian Bale, Tom Hardy and Mark Ruffalo in the mix. But it was a soft spoken actor from Kent who was called up on stage in the form of the wonderful Mark Rylance.

The 56 year old's turn in Bridge of Spies marks one of his first appearances in a major movie, with most of his time spent on the stage. But for anyone who saw the film it was a triumphant performance, with one scene in particular being the kind of moment that Oscar reels are made of.

Here's his rather lovely acceptance speech.

Expect to be seeing a lot more of this wonderful actor in the future, with director Steven Spielberg already set to work with him again as the voice and motion capture performance of The BFG.
